“The doctor of the future will give no medicine, but will interest their patients in the care of the human frame, in a proper diet, and in the cause and prevention of disease.”
- Thomas Edison
“Look well to the spine for the cause of disease.”
-Hippocrates, the father of modern medicine
I don’t know about you, but in my opinion, these are a couple of pretty smart dudes! They were well ahead of their time! We could learn a lot by listening to them!
I remember my mom driving us to school in our sweet station wagon with the wood panels on the outside listening to Neil Diamond, The Beach Boys, The Everly Brothers, and The Beatles on the 8-track player. Musical preference aside, I also remember thinking how anything could ever get better? How could there be anything more advanced than an 8-track player? Fast forward 20 years, and now we have Ipods, MP3 players, and other amazing technology. Funny thing is, 20 years from now, we’ll be looking back at Ipods and MP3 players and laughing at how “old school” they are, I guarantee it!
What about health and the human body? It amazes me that some of the smartest people on the planet think we have it all figured out when it comes to how the human body functions. There is one thing I’m certain of, and that is that we haven’t even scratched the surface of the amazing functioning and healing potential that God put within each and every person. I also believe that future research will only confirm what Chiropractors have known since 1895 (the year Chiropractic was founded). That is that the body heals itself through the nervous system from Above, Down, Inside, Out. Above meaning the brain, Down through the spinal cord, In through the nerves, and Out to every single organ, tissue, and cell in the body!
Blockages in the nervous system will have an effect on how your body is functioning and healing. Chiropractors work to remove/reduce these blockages and allow your Innate Intelligence to work at its Full Potential to heal and repair the body!
Love and Health,
P.S. Give someone a big hug today! Just because!
